Governess – There is a place called Oban Manor. Isolated and private… Far from the bustle and life of the streets and everyday cares. A place where the guests are pupils and the sponsors are looking forward to the exquisite skills that are taught. A hotel perched on a rocky islet just a few miles from Oban in Western Scotland. A bleak place, a solitary place, a strict place with Mistress Elisabeth the Governess and a bevy of teachers that can improve any man’s behaviour and make them suitable for their wives, girlfriends or family.
